I dusted out the LBD, searched for the pearls and gave them a good shine before I could brush up on my adequate conservatory Italian and the characteristic yet amusing hand movements all for the latest addition of The Monday Show at Cavalli Club Dubai which combines classic Hollywood movies paired with an Italian meal.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ played in the background on a large projected screen with the audio turned up to an audible level whilst I dined the night away with selections from the Cavalli Club al la carte menu.
A combination of freshly baked soft bread basket kept company, while the ordered Tempura di gameri, capsante e zucchini con duo di salse – King prawns, scallops and zucchini tempura, an Italian take on the humble fish and chips was savored with the accompanied dips along with a bottle of Costamolino – Argiolas suggested by the in-house sommelier.
The exceptional Filetto di manzo, salsa al caffe e fichi caramellati – Pan roasted beef filled with coffee sauce and caramelized figs ordered as a main was cooked medium rare with the delicious coffee sauce complimenting the seasonal ripened figs.
The dolci was impeccable and held the Italians proud to their skillful delicate desserts. The decadent Mousse di cioccolato al latte con curore di banana e la sua salasa – Milk chocolate mousse with banana heart and hot sauce with each bite was sinfully savored while a Trio di desserts offered a taste of the classic Italian tiramisu and mango cheesecake which were a firm favorite amongst a few.
The intriguing and unique experience is one for the classic movie goers that enjoy the Cavalli glam décor, posh stature and glitzy lights.
